We are back with another update. I’m feeling like I’m starting to loose steam on this challenge and really want to be done with it, so hopefully we will be done by the end of the month, but I don’t know if we will. Still, we are getting close, so let’s take a look and our goals.

So last time you may remember that we watched the final O-twins grow up into toddlers, Reed worked on acting and maxed the skill, Olive and Oceana moved into the other realm, and Lily became an elder while her brothers became adults. The twins do have Ancient Bloodline, and we finished anther skill and aspiration. Let’s check in now.
We start with a sweet look at the boys, their dad, and little puppy Basil. Rye is working his way through some magic books because he’s getting stronger in magic, but we haven’t been very focused on his magic abilities yet.
These two sit down and watch a movie together. They are very cute and very sweet with each other. I adore them and need to get working on the soulmate aspiration a little bit more, although they just need to start going on dates.
Our Basil grew up into a full sized dog, and oh isn’t he just the sweetest??!!! I love him, he looks so soft and fluffy! I want a dog in RL, but sims dogs will have to do for now. Reed watches him grow up big and strong.
Basil is well taken care of in this family and he has decided he LOVES the toilet. I don’t know what it is with my sim pets but Jill from the Otts ISBI also loved the toilet. Analisa will be the one working on training him, and I find it adorable that toddlers can “imitate” a dog. Basil is one very good dog!
Oriole is a cutie, but a bit of a handful. I have been so busy with Reed’s acting and Basil’s training I have not done a good job of focusing on the twins and their skills. This needs to change or they won’t get through their skills and it will make it harder on them later in life.
Analisa diligently reads the boys to bed. She needs to discipline them now for her aspiration, and hopefully we will be able to get that done within her time as a parent. It shouldn’t be that hard, and she’s building up more and more parenting skills. I’d love to have the super efficient baby care for the final babies.
Exciting news, the newest baby, baby P, is on it’s way, so likely no super efficient parenting for this baby. This leaves us with one final pregnancy after this, and raising them up and then this challenge is done. We still have some skills to work on maxing, but overall we are so very close!
It’s new years and that means everyone makes some resolutions, watches the count down and are ready for a new year for the family. This year will bring more babies and hopefully we only have a sim year or two left in this challenge! The family has worked hard!
Some extended family news for the new year as well, two more little Comic’s (or at least from the Comic’s members) were born. Misty had a boy, and Kyra, who got pregnant by Birch last update, had a little girl.
I really like these two and would like for MCCC to put them together once Reed is out of the house, but we’ll see what happens. He manages to steal a kiss from the girl who does his wardrobe, but maybe she doesn’t think he’s serious. *Spoiler* MCCC married her off before he moved into the neighborhood. 😦
Today was a Game of Thrones-esk performance. Giving speeches on balconies, having sword fights, and exchanging words in the great hall. It’s just too much fun to watch all this.
But it led to Reed’s final promotion. That gives us another job down, and all we need is for Rye to finish up his and we’ve completed 10 careers! Hard to believe it’s been that long already, but Reed will be moving out soon having completed his goals.
The twins are getting busy working on their skills. Now that I am not following their uncle Reed to his performances anymore they can be focused on and we are working on getting them to at least Happy Toddlers if not Top-Notch.
Petunia is adding to the extended family with her husband. It’s good to know the family continues to grow outside of this house and maybe Petunia’s new baby and our new baby here could have a toddler play date!
Basil is a good dog, very loyal and sweet! He doesn’t demand much but Analisa is always giving him attention, pets, walks, you name it. She is up to a level 4 in pet training so we are close to being done with that skill.
Reed hasn’t left yet and so he helps little Oryx with some thinking skills by doing flash cards with him. I think it’s going to be tight to get both toddlers all their skills this time, but they should both make happy toddler at least.
Another bed time, and more stories are told by Analisa and Rye. The boys wanted their own stories tonight and our loyal Basil is there to watch over them as they sleep. He spends a bunch of time in the boys room if he isn’t by Analisa’s side.
I forget that Analisa is a child of the islands, so she calls for the island spirits but then sudden pains that she recognizes from her first pregnancy strike her and we realize it’s time to head to the hospital! Baby P is on the way! So we say good-bye to the island spirits, we’ll call them again later, and head to the hospital.
When we arrive at the hospital Rye freaks out and then runs off as Analisa heads to the birthing contraption, but for the very first time, a spouse stays close. Rye actually ran into the room next door and then freaked out watching through the window as his wife climbed into the contraption. Luckily everything worked as it should and the baby arrived without complications.
Meet Pine Comic. He is the final baby P in the family, he will be the Bad Apple of this generation, and I’m excited to see what another little boy looks like. The house is once again full and we will need to have Reed move out to make room for the final pregnancy, but for now we will focus on getting the twins aged up and Pine taken care of.
Before we leave this update, as the birth of Pine puts us in a perfect ending spot for now, let’s take a look at the latest extended family portraits shall we? From the top you have Hawk Comic all grown up. He is Lavender’s only child, then we have Wade’s son Cyrpus. He used to be a red-head but apparently decided that he wanted to look like his dad, who also dyed his hair as a teen. The we have Lake, Petunia’s only child so far, although as we saw, she is pregnant again. The lower level we have current spouses or partners. We start with Kellie Delgato who is now married to Wade, Goopy Eggleston is next and is the father of Misty’s son. Kyra, we discussed earlier, and is Birch’s baby mama. Finally we have Ellis Winslow who married Lavender.
That’s it for now, thank you for joining us yet again and hope to see you next time as we get closer and closer to wrapping up this crazy challenge.
